P-51D Mustang "Janie"

19.3k Destroyerz117  10 days ago

[DISCLAIMER] This is an entry to CatBaron's livery challenge, therefore its made with help of a base plane, original plane can be viewed here

Here with a shorter build than usual,

to add to the ever increasing amount of P-51 D mustangs I decided to do one myself!

This is an entry to CatBarons livery challenge where you take the base plane he made and add onto it to give it its own look. You can view that over here link
I chose to make a livery of the janie mustang for no reason other than it looking cool,
this was really fun to particapate in as i got to go straight to making the plane look how i wanted abd cat barons build was very easy to skin because of good proportions.

Definitely is something I'd look into doing again,

in addition to patterning i also made a couple tweaks to the handling of the plane (i.e slowing down the roll slightly shifting the cOM)but nothing very noticeable, also disabled suspension on the landing gear as the plane would bounce (I also blocked up the control surfaces a good few times and had to keep fixing them whoops) and i tweaked the bullet colour so there's that.

Planet express should be finished soon.

    I was going to make the P-51K-5-NT "Nooky Booky IV" of the Major Leonard "Kit" Carson, but it seems that you definitely win the challenge...
